Noncommissioned officers honored with induction into Fort Leavenworth's Hall of Fame

FORT LEAVENWORTH | Two Army noncommissioned officers have joined the elite ranks of soldiers who have been inducted into Fort Leavenworth's Hall of Fame.

Command Sgt. Maj. Larry Smith and Sgt. Maj. William McBryar had their names added to the list Wednesday.

McBryar first served as a Buffalo Soldier in the 10th Cavalry in Arizona. He died in 1941. He was awarded the Medal of Honor in 1890 for his role in capturing a group of Apaches after a five-day, 200-mile chase.

Smith spent 34 years in uniform, serving most of his years in Germany, including tours in 1961 and 1989 when the Berlin Wall was built and when it was torn down.

Both McBryar and Smith also had stints at Fort Leavenworth.
